will be better than the past. [applause] if paul ryan and i are elected we will endeavor with all our hearts and energy to restore america. instead of more spending and more borrowing and more taxes, we'll renew our faith in the power of free people. we'll have a plan for a stronger middle class that has five elements. one we're going to put america on track to a balanced budget by eliminating unnecessary programs and send programs back to state and by shrinking the bureaucracy in washington. number two, we'll produce more of the energy we need to heat our homes, fill our cars and make our economy grow. we will stop the obama war on coal and the effort to crimp natural gas and the very technology that produces it.

be more clear. supports the ryan plan which has massive new tax cut for the very wealthy. $260,000 for the average millionaire like tommy. it pays for it with an increase in middle income taxes. what concerns me the most beyond the -- that, tommy signed a pledge to grover norquist that committee will never ask the wealthy to do more. that is wrong. for us to audit fair shot, we all have to do our fair share. indeed balance -- we need balance. >> i would like to respond. >> you will get that chance. let me follow up. is there enough money there to make a dent in the nation's debt by raising taxes on the wealthy? do we really get to where we need to get if we do not touch entitlements? >> let's talk about that. if we let the bush tax cuts on the top 2% expire, that will be the better part of $1 trillion. i do not think it is -- it isn't what he does raise some issues about the un funded wars and tax cuts. each of us have a record of either supporting or opposing policies that got us into this mess in the first place. tommy thompson left to talk about his time as governor during t
for their own lives. congressman ryan writes about the culture of dependency. i did not recognize the country they are talking about. that is not the country i live in. i am here to tell you, we are better positioned than any nation in the world to lead the 21st century. they say we are in decline. 5.2 million new jobs instead of losing $800,000 per month -- 800,00 jobs per month. but the and implement rate -- when the unemployment rate dropped to the lowest since we took office, they did not say implement it was declining, this america is declining. export is up 41%. housing starts were at the highest level since 2008. when they heard that, they said america is in decline. more americans for the first time feeling they're better off and will be better off than any time in the last five years. what is their answer? america is in decline. romney and ryan are in denial. that is what's wrong. you folks in virginia get it. there is no quit in america. the american people have fought their way back and they are not going back. the entire history of this great nation as only known one direction --
a timetable, that he would not do that. i had a debate as well, with ryan.

uaw workers that are here. it is the policies that mitt romney and paul ryan want to put in place that will make the auto industry strong -- [indiscernbile] he wants sensible regulations. he wants tax reform that will ensure we can get the auto companies back on their feet. he wants to make sure that trade is fair. he wants workers trained to work better for them. he wants their energy costs now. that is what will keep energy -- otter jobs here in ohio. that is what mitt romney is going to. balks, we are in the fourth quarter. the score is tied. we're in the red zone. we got the momentum on our side. are we going to be sure that we take mitt romney over the goal line in the next eight days? ladies and gentlemen, the next president of the united states, mitt romney. b >> thank you. what an avon lake welcome. thank you so very much. thank you, senator portman, and the lieutenant governor has been going with us all over the state. her support means everything in the world. the senator was my sparring partner. he was really strong. i finally -- it is nice not to argue with him all the
to address the challenges we face. you have a ryan plan, not once but twice that my opponent voted for that continues to give the cuts to the most fortunate americans. to pay for that, it is asking seniors to take medicare, medicare guarantee to turn it into a voucher. it's taking students asking them to pay more, it's taking middle class putting average increase on their taxes. >> what you're saying, it's a general sense of fairness, 70/30 that you come up with. congressman before you were elected to congress, you signed a pledge to grover norquist to never raise taxes. why the change? >> certainly what it does, it talks about if you're going to lower rates, you got lower them in others. i don't believe necessarily raising taxes is the answer. >> you're now open to increased revenue? two years ago -- >> when i got to washington, things were worse than i anticipated. what i do know, you got to work together to get a solution. what i am looking to try to do is solve these big problems. i come forth with an idea and a plan. we look at more and more out of work today than we want to s

ryan and i are focused on how we can make our way back to prosperity and opportunity, how we can rebuilt a strong military, and fashion a strong economy. the choice before you is clear -- we can wait four more years for real change or we can take things in a new direction in just a few short days. on tuesday, the choice is yours. our destiny is in your hands. i hope to have your support and i am asking for your vote. thank you so very much, and god bless america. >> not sure when mitt romney and barack obama recorded the weekend addresses. but they had to squeeze it in on a busy day. each traveling through a number of battleground states, campaigning on this third day, three days before election day. we have live road to the white house coverage on c-span. in 20 minutes or so, we will take you to englewood, colorado. mitt and ann romney have their last stop of the day. they have been in new hampshire and iowa. we follow that with your reaction. later, president obama who has been in four states -- virginia will be his last in last virginia, jiffyw, lube live pavilion. he will be

a 43% reduction in fema grants. paul ryan others have tried to refuse budget requests when disasters are more expensive or other programs be cut to pay for them. the ryan budget which mr. romney praised as an excellent piece of work with result in severe cutbacks to the agency as would republican i understand city gated sequester that could relief 8.2%. mr. romney believe that financially stressed states would do a better job than properly functioning federal agency? that is "new york times" editorial. a call from louisville, ohio. rex. independent caller. caller: i'm looking at the question and somebody will have to come to the realization that we are dealing with education regurgitation. because you said trust in government through natural disaster. could we trust so-called government in getting in to illegal unfunded wars or trust the government dealing with hiding fascist trade agreements or $4 for a gallon of gas? so, no, we can't trust the government. but the problem is the question. because the government is the people. if you go to the constitution, it is a government for the
that are going to be asked to pay $2,000 more under the ryan budget plan that my opponent supports. $100 billion and a savings every year. the report is sitting on a shelf. it has a proposal such as merging the small business administration with the department of commerce. it has proposals like getting rid of redundant services. for instance, job training programs. there are 44 redundant job training programs that we can do away with. >> the same questions with specifics justice, schilling. >> i believe you start with the top and lead by example. my opponent talks about the mail as i said. -- the mailers that i sent. i invested less than 50 cents per constituent in the district. we spent money communicating with our constituents but at the same time, we spent less on office is that what my predecessor is spent on 1. my payroll was about $40,000 less than my predecessor. one of the cuts, asset and the agricultural committee. -- one of the cuts, i sit on the ag committee. one of the cuts saved $16 billion. what the cut does, i believe he did not take anything away from those that chilly needed if
not be more clear. he starts with supporting the ryan plan, which has massive new tax cuts for the very wealthy, $260,000 for the average millionaire like tommy. and it pays for it with an increase in middle income taxes. beyond that, what concerns me the most, we spoke earlier when you asked him about compromise, the pledged to a washington d.c. lobbyist by the name of or for norquist that basically, it's that he will never asked about the to do more. that is wrong. in order for us to all have a fair shot, we all have to do our fair share. we need balance as we confront this very real and serious problem. >> i will let you respond to, but let me follow up. is there really enough money there to make a dent in the nation's debt by raising taxes on the wealthy? you can make an argument that it's a fairness issue. some people believe that. but is there enough? we're not going to fund course again > do we really need to get where we need to get if we don't touch entitlements? >> let's talk about that. if we let the bush tax cuts on the top 2% expire, that will amount to $849 billion. the be
of this campaign talking about small things, but the challenge we face are real and big. that is why paul ryan and i are focused on how we can make our way back to prosperity and opportunity, how we can rebuild a strong military and fashion a strong economy. the choice before you is clear. we can wait four more years for real change or we can take things in in a new direction in just a few short days. on tuesday, the choice is yours. our destiny is in your hands. i hope to have your support and your vote. thank you and god bless america. >> presidential candidate mitt romney given the republican weekly address. and before that, of obama giving his weekly address. all day, c-span is bringing you the dates from some of the most hotly contested senate and congress races around the country. here are the numbers to call to share your thoughts. you can also send us a tweet. let's get to the phones and hear what you have to say. anthony is in cedar rapids. were you watching the debate of iowa oppose a fourth? fourth?s caller: i have been writing to the president for some time on how to actually creat
